The head of the State Duma Committee Andrey Kartapolov proposed to apply the experience of CTO in the North Caucasus to protect the border with Ukraine
To protect the border with Ukraine, coordination of all law enforcement agencies is necessary, this function can be assumed by the joint headquarters, said Andrey Kartapolov, head of the State Duma Defense Committee.
The general suggested not to look for some complicated solutions to the situation with the protection of the borders with Ukraine, but to use the already existing experience. According to him, in the same Belgorod region there are a sufficient number of security officials from various departments, but they do not have a single command. Therefore, it is necessary to create a joint headquarters, which will include representatives of all law enforcement agencies, so it will coordinate all actions.
The Ministry of Defense has experience in creating such headquarters, suffice it to recall the conduct of counter-terrorist operations in the North Caucasus.

Commenting on the possibility of arming the territorial defense units created in the regions, the general said that for this it is necessary to give them some kind of legal status. As one of the options, he suggested linking the defense units to local departments of the Ministry of Internal Affairs or the FSB. According to him, the idea with the armament of the terodefense is correct, but it needs to be finalized.
